F7#9

Description

Sometimes known as the 'Hendrix chord' for its use in songs like Foxy Lady and Purple Haze, this chord is the same as a dominant 7 chord, but with a #9 near the top of the voicing: 1-3-5-b7-#9

Standard scale choice

Of course, Hendrix was able to solo over this chord using the minor pentatonic and blues scale. If you're feeling more adventurous, you could use the the 'reversed' diminished scale, which alternates semitone-wholetone-semitone-wholetone-... for the whole octave. 1 b2 #2 3 #4 5 6 b7
